10-4: Community Thursday! 1


Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

Mister Other One Headband Tutorial

Mister Other One Headband Tutorial, photo from Mister Other One

This is mega-cool. Jessie from Mister Other One shows off how to make an easy fabric headband, in simple and well-illustrated steps. I have a headband like this from her and I loooove it. [She's safe forever from me making them for myself, because my seams will never be as nice as hers!] While you’re reading the tutorial, might I suggest skipping over to their shop to check out the other Mister Other One goodies. [BEERINGS! Jewelry for Geeks!]

These would be perfect for Autumnal decorations, or even connected together for a pretty necklace or scarf! Simple design, and should work up quickly.
